Got Next: Bubba Starling
|Bubba Starling is a Hero, Gentleman, and Scholar|
Starling played quarterback (waste of words) and was able to use his 6'5 200 lbs frame and prolific (4.5) speed to amass amazing rushing statistics. In his senior year alone, Starling gained 2,377 yards on 188 carries. He earned a four star rating from Rivals.com only because his team did not throw often. Although the internet recruiting sites underrated him, Starling was still named an Army All-American and signed a national letter of intent with University of Nebraska. Here are some of his football highlights.
Although basketball is Starlings worst sport, he still scored over 28 points per game during his high school senior season. Take a look at some of the awesome dunks he throws down in the video below.

This is where Starling really excelled. He hit a home run every six at bats during his senior season and is a legitimate five tool player at center field. He would be projected as the top pick in the draft if it wasn't for the fact that he is represented by Scott Boras and that he might go play football at Nebraska. Here is his baseball evaluation from ESPN.com.
Unfortunately, Starling now has to finally specialize. Before he does, The Collective would like to give three cheers to this American hero.
